Appropriate Technologies
 

Rural areas continue to be marginalised in terms of access to simple appropriate technologies, information and communication technologies and modern technologies.To curb the marginalisation, the ministry of Local Government and Rural development, through its decentralization process established rural development centres for easier and improved access of appropriate technologies by the rural communities. In addition this helps bring rural communities closer to their mainly urban elites who have access to ICTs, water, electricity and other technologies.

Rural areas are endowed with natural resources that can be tapped using appropriate technology to improve the livelihoods of the people. Some of projects thatcould be intergrated in all the rural development centers include hammer mill making, mould making, construction, agriculture, rain water harverting, carpentry, welding and other projects.

Benefits

Appropriate technology for such kinds of work which is rendered by local entrepreneurs is usually very expensive and very few people in rural areas access it, therefore the intervention of government of Namibia through the ministry of local government and Rural Development, in setting up rural development centres and funding their operations is very beneficial to local rural communities.

Management of centres

For effectiveness, efficiency and autonomy, the government outsource the services of contracting Agencies to manage the rural development centres. Ngoma Consulting Services, being the contracting Agency managing the rural development centres, strive to maintain the standard of the centres through operational excellence by puting emphasis on the sustainability, cost effectiveness and the compatibility of the appropriate technologies to the targetd rural development centre. Ngoma Consulting Services compliment government’s effort by seeking donor funding to expand the operations of the centres and foster the implementation of sustainable solutions to the rural community.
